Let go of that dream. Marvell is just giving excuses for
why they won't release the rest of the code. The true
reasons are not public, but likely: the code is a buggy
piece of crap that Marvell sees as being valuable IP.

That dream has already cost us dearly, and I think it
was intentional. People would have started work over
a year ago had they known how dishonest Marvell
would be.
